I have to travel that road everyday to go the Charlottesville from Stuarts Draft, a people drive faster and more like race car drivers on RT 340 than I-64. It is a crazy ass ride somedays,I should say everyday. I have always tried not to speed, But I'm like most people out here, we all have a time or two. But there is others out there, that drive like a bat out of hell all the time and you never see a state police car or a county car writing tickets . If the county would make the county cops write more speeding tickets and get out of their air conditioned cars, then the county would not have to raise of real estate taxes for the school board to waste more tax money. There is no reason, why one cop, can not ride between Stuarts Draft and the Ladd stop lght and do nothing but write speeding ticket all day, the county has more money and the road is safer. Just yesterday, at 5:10, I was a group of cars and while in the right hand lane and keeping up with them, I was doing 74mph. that's in a 55 zone. Si I should have gotten a ticket just like the rest of the group I was racing with. Route 340 is a race track, we need more police on that road. Hope everyone is ok and .healing. It could have been way worse

Have you ever drove a big truck and do you really know what happen.This man has been driving this truck for years and never had an accident. Things happen and we don't always know why . The Christian thing to do is pray he will be alright!!!!
